I have been staying in the George weekdays for 8 weeks and can only praise the staff here. Always greeted with friendliness and helpfulness and any small changes I requested were always met, from needing extra things for the room to a complete room change. Everyone has been very accomodating (pun intended!)
Some rooms have been renovated and modernised (I've been in several during my long stay!) and others are more old fashioned, but all are clean, have comfortable beds, WiFi, flat screen TVs, tea/coffee making facilities, hairdryer, electric fan.
Originally a 16th century coaching house, guess what! Yes part of the building is actually old and yes there are some creaky floorboards! The front rooms i stayed in were newly renovated but face the main junction and light sleepers may find it a bit loud (advice, when booking request a room that's not at the front!) my colleagues who are heavier sleepers have had no issue with the front rooms!
Having been here so long I've pretty much eaten my way through the menu and haven't had a bad meal once.
Everyone has had different experiences at different places, but I feel some of these reviews were expecting 5* in a 3* hotel! It's classed as 3* and stands up to my comparison to other 3* hotels I've stayed in!
I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it, as I have been nothing but happy with my stay. Especially with the hospitality and helpfulness of all the staff.. and especially during the recent snowfall that left me stranded here 5 days longer than booked! I can't be more grateful x less
